11:02 pm
by the opposition claim it is too early to announce the outcome. —— but. our turkey correspondent mark lowen sent us this update from istanbul. president erdogan has claimed a historic outright win the. they are convinced of him at the ak party headquarters. official votes are still being counted what they believe what the state tv agency is telling him, that his 15 year leadership of turkey has just been extended. his diehard believers never doubted it. but still, they say that it. the date —— the devotees of a president who looks to be cemented in power, results from the state news agency showing he has won another five—year term loopholes had suggested he had struggled to win outright and could have faced a raft. translation: in means everything to us. translation: in means everything to us. turkey would have been lost without him. it would ceased to exist. all of them is happy, so i am
11:03 pm
happy. one half of the turkish people is not happy, the other half. but it is all people. relief for tu rkey‘s but it is all people. relief for turkey's strongman who has claimed victory. if the results are confirmed, he will adopt sweeping new powers, is scrapping the post of prime minister, ruling with decrees and choosing most seniorjudges, turkey ‘s most power —— powerful leader since its founding father. translation: the unofficial results of the elections have come clear. according to these i have been interested with a nation of the tasks and duties of the presidency. but the opposition has cried foul, the leader of the centre—left was widely believed to have forced him toa widely believed to have forced him to a second round. he and his party say the newsagency announced results before ballot boxes were opened. millions of votes are still to be counted. translation: don't believe
11:04 pm
the result that has been announced right now, it is the actual data, i tell you the real result. if this process goes on, there will be a second round. voting passed off relatively peacefully, with queues at polling stations across turkey. turnout was 87%. whatever can be said about the state of turkish democracy, this is a nation that cherishes its right to have a say in it. after 16 years, probably on the rise. isn't it time for a change after 16 years of ak party? no. why not? translation: because i am happy with them, trust them and i believe that stability should continue. and so, once side that believes a result that parties into the night, but another that refuses to accept it, accusing the state machine of
11:05 pm
creating a false reality. this pivotal, polarised society is on dangerous ground. england have thrashed panama by six goals to one, to record their biggest ever win at a world cup finals. the victory secures their place in the knock out stages of the competition. our sports editor dan roan reports from nizhny novgorod. england's world cup was about to hot up. with temperatures exceeding anything they had experienced in russia, conditions were meant to favour their central american opponents. but after last week's last gasp win, england would now turn potential into the defining performance their fans had craved for years. they were braced for a bruising encounter against minnows, panama. things immediately turning nasty in nizhny. but at set pieces, england have developed a threat of their own. that is headerforjohn stones, it has gone in! and from a corner, john stones gave his side the lead. having been denied penalties against tunisia, england now had more luck with escobar
11:06 pm
bringing down jesse lingard. harry kane giving panama's keeper no chance. how emphatic was that? but england were about to run riot. first lingard scored the goal his stellar performance deserved. jesse lingard! this what it meant to the manager and to the millions watching back home. before stones again finished off another clever set piece move. by now, panama had lost the plot, more indiscipline handing kane another penalty. england five, panama nil. never before had england scored this many in a world cup match and we hadn't even reached half—time. pa nama's ordeal wasn't over. kane's third goal after the restart owed more to fortune, but the records will show
11:07 pm
england's first world cup hat—trick for 32 years. the captain now the tournament's top scorer on five. england's intensity then dropped off and substitute, felipe baloy, took advantage. panama at least with the consolation of their first—ever world cup goal. but this had been england's day, one of their best days, 6—1, final score, their most emphatic world cup victory sending them through to the next round with a game to spare. everybody over the last four weeks, what they have put into it, it is really rewarding to see how they are playing, how they are enjoying their football and i am sure everybody at home has enjoyed it as well, which has been great. the captain, meanwhile, becoming only the third englishman to score a world cup hat—trick. we've been working on set pieces, we have been working on the way we want to play and it is all coming together, so, brilliant result, obviously, fantastic to do it in this way. it is brilliant. unbelievable. one of the biggest world cup moments ever for england. amazing.
11:08 pm
you just can't believe it. england do things by 0—0, 1—0, 6—1? 6-1! we are going all the way to moscow, it is going to be incredible. for years, england sides have struggled to impose themselves on world cups. how times have changed. and we'll find out how this story — and many others — are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 11:30pm this evening in the papers. our guests joining me tonight are charlie wells from the economist and joel taylor, deputy news editor at the metro. the government has announced new measures to tackle obesity in england. ministers want to ban shops displaying unhealthy snacks at checkouts — impose tighter restrictions on television adverts — and ban the sale of energy drinks to children. the government said the cost of obesity was "too great to ignore", but labour accused the prime minister of a "dossier of failure" on children's health. here's our health editor hugh pym. looking after the health of future generations. that is the aim of the government's plan. this class is run by us mums, a healthy lifestyle initiative
11:09 pm
developed by hull city council. the view here is any help in choosing the right food for the family is welcomed. i think unhealthy food is just way too cheap and it is just easier for everybody to, you know, just get unhealthy food when you are out. just go in somewhere and pick up something, like chocolate, or a packet of crisps, on the go. the government plan for england includes restrictions on unhealthy food promotions, including sweets at the tills, calorie information in restaurants and a ban on tvjunk food advertising before 9pm. a poll for the bbc by the health foundation showed 67% support such a ban. these measures were all considered by david cameron in 2016, but then put on hold when theresa may became prime minister. all these options were available two years ago, you did not take them, was it a wasted opportunity? you can always do more, but i think what we did two years ago was we said we wanted to reduce
11:10 pm
the sugar content in food consumed by children by 5% in the first year and if we did not deliver on that, we will go further. well, industry didn't deliver on that, so today we are going further. the plan also includes an exercise boost for children, spreading the daily mile initiative to every primary school in england. after reading the detail of the strategy, some health campaigners said they had reservations. we welcome the plan, it is definitely a step in the right direction, however many of the actions are subject to consultation and we don't know if they will actually take place. further more, we think that there needs to be other areas that need to be looked at and considered for the future. the food and drink federation said there had been deep disquiet in the industry and there will be intense scrutiny of how the measures might work. the government wants every restaurant and cafe to set out the calorie content of each dish on its menu. now, that is a big ask, especially for smaller outlets and a lot of detail will have to be worked out of how
11:11 pm
it is going to be implemented after the consultation process. scotland's first minister nicola sturgeon who recently met celebrity chef jamie oliver has made her own pledge to halve child obesity. a plan will be published soon. hugh pym, bbc news. the german chancellor, angela merkel, says an eu mini—summit on migration has agreed that countries on the front line of migration routes cannot be left alone to carry the burden. she said an existing deal to pay turkey to stop migrants entering europe could serve as a model for other transit countries. italy and malta have recently banned charity rescue boats from their ports, leaving vessels, loaded with migrants, stranded in international waters. our europe editor, katya adler, is following developments in brussels. world, not much was achieved at today's minisummit soppy expectations were not too high. eu leaders agree they have to work
11:12 pm
together to combat illegal migration, but that is hardly a revelation. more interesting, really, is why they convened to this extraordinary summit right now in the summer of 2018. things are very, very different in the height of the microsoft —— migrant crisis three yea rs microsoft —— migrant crisis three years ago and in fact, the number of arrivals is down to an extent that most countries haven't been affected and have been able to simply look the other way. so what has changed all of a sudden? well, the migrant crisis for europe in 2018 is about a change in politics, not a change in migrant arrival numbers. suddenly, two of the main countries that have been deal with the migrants that have still come, that is germany, on the one hand, who takes the largest number, and italy on the other, where most votes arrived, they have turned around and said no more. both countries have voted to be
11:13 pm
increasingly worried about migration and both have seen the rise of different extent to tougher migration politicians. two—day summit, both countries turned around and said we are all in this together 5°ppy and said we are all in this together soppy but the response they got today and the same that you will expect to see at the end of this week at a formal summit of all eu leaders in brussels is that eu leaders in brussels is that eu leaders will say yes, of course we all have to do something about illegal migration, but then they disagree about exactly what and exactly how. this week marks three years since the terror attack in the tunisian beach resort of sousse. thirty of the dead were british and some of those who survived say they feel let down by the government, because they've not had enough financial support. now a group representing victims of all terror attacks is calling for a dedicated fund to be set up, to help those affected. judith moritz reports. each time terror strikes, the routine is repeated. rolling news on our screens. a number of fatalities
11:14 pm
following reports of an explosion... government promises of support. i will ensure we do all we can to help those affected. like in tunisia three years ago. we just heard screams, shouting, gunshots, it was just chaos. ijust remember saying, "oh my god, we're going to die." shirley church lost her leg after the beach attack in which 38 people died. traumatic enough. but she says her suffering has been made worse by financial worries. rules mean shirley can't claim government funds, as well as private compensation. but, so far, neither has come through. ijust get my disability money and my husband gets his carer's allowance. before the attack, you were working? both working full—time. it's a big, big drop in what's coming into the house now. you feel the government should be doing more? i think the government should help.
11:15 pm
when this happened, they promised they would help in many different ways. nothing's happened. in 2016, an attack on brussels airport and metro claimed 32 lives. charlotte dixon—sutcliffe lost her partner david. being a victim of terrorism isn't like being a victim of any other crime. she's part of a group which wants a single fund to be created for all british victims of terror. we want something that can be done very, very quickly. because, if there are going to be more attacks, imminently, we really need a better system that is more prepared to deal with victims needs. however, that doesn't in any way mean that the state can step back from its responsibility. in countries including spain and france, there is specific government funding for terrorism victims. in the uk, payments are made by the criminal injuries compensation authority, which helps victims of all violent crime. at london bridge, the only british victim was james mcmullen. his sister has found the system difficult to navigate. having to deal with all that on top
11:16 pm
of all the extra paperwork you're supposed to fill out before the compensation that the government give you. as well as, fortunately for us, the money that we received from the charity. it's just a lot to take in. you can't really take a second to think about what has actually happened because you're trying to get through the mountains of paperwork. the government says it's committed to providing comprehensive and swift support to terror victims and to making the system as smooth as possible. judith moritz, bbc news. the headlines on bbc news: president erdogan has claimed victory in turkey's presidential and parliamentary elections, but opposition has not yet accepted defeat. england fans celebrate after the lions make it through to the knock out stages of the world cup in russia thanks to a record—breaking win over panama. new measures aimed at halving the number of obese children in england by 2030 are announced by the government.
11:17 pm
one of oui’ our round—ups from sport now. england produced their biggest victory at a world cup to book their place in the last 16. harry kane's hat trick helping them to a 6—1win over panama. gareth southgate's side qualifying for the knock out stage with one game to spare. joe lynskey reports. every world cup match reveals more about this england team. from tunisian resilience, now, facing panama's passion. just being here is the climax of a journey. england are just getting started. it is in! inside eight minutes, john stones got a goal. soon after, a foul on
11:18 pm
jesse lingard. a penalty. one man to trust with it. emphatic! harry kane's convergence set the foundations for flamboyance. jesse lingard gave it a silky touch. he fires ina lingard gave it a silky touch. he fires in a quite beautiful third for england. that bird strike was special. the fourth was beautiful in a different style. stones, back to finish it. the centre—half has more world cup strikes and wayne rooney. panama's world cup strikes and wayne rooney. pa nama's naivete was world cup strikes and wayne rooney. panama's naivete was now increasingly exposed. just like tunisia, they wrestled harry kane to the floor. after this second penalty, he went out in front in the charts with fortune. a hat—trick completed with a click of the heels.
11:19 pm
6-0. completed with a click of the heels. 6—0. they lost track at the back to let panama in for the first world cup goal. a strike of significance. for england, it barely changed the mood so before harry kane, a football to take home. this is the day they start to believe. jaliens key, bbc news. just before half—time, the game was done today. it isa half—time, the game was done today. it is a strange feeling watching the second half just trying it is a strange feeling watching the second halfjust trying to encourage the layers to keep professional and bea the layers to keep professional and be a top team by being ruthless. —— players. i am pleased the captain got a hat—trick. players. i am pleased the captain got a hat-trick. it has been going well so far to be a long way to go. if my goals help the team win, that
11:20 pm
is the perfect situation. good players. i am just happy. is the perfect situation. good players. lam just happy. i hope i can continue it. a big game to come on thursday against dodgem. —— belgium. all eyes are on group h to see who will finish first and second. it is a team from here whom england will play in the last 16, japan currently top after a two all draw with senegal who are second. the japanese twice came from behind. substitute, keizuke honda, salvaging a valuable point with a goal late on in the second half. colombia are now chasing them down for a spot in the last 16. they beat poland 3—0, who are now out of the world cup. yerry mina scored their first, before former manchester united and chelsea striker falcao doubled the lead midway through the second half. the win was completed by another former chelsea man, juan cuadardo. he latched onto james rodrieguez pin—point pass to seal the victory. england won the 5th and final one day international against australia
11:21 pm
at old trafford to take the series 5—0 and with it a first series whitewash. it took a remarkable 110 not out from jos buttler to do it though. he'd steered england from 27 for 4 to their victory target of 206. it's the first time england have achieved a series whitewash against australia in any form of cricket. lewis hamilton has returned to the top of formula one's drivers' championship after winning the french grand prix. with title rival, sebastian vettel, crashing at the first corner there was no—one to challenge the briton, who went on to win for the third time this season. he now leads the german by 1a points. marin cilic has beaten novac djokovic to win his second title at the queen's club. he fought back from a set down against the former world number one to win the longest final in the tournament's history.
11:22 pm
djokovic, who had been aiming to win his first title in a year, had a match point in the second set but couldn't convert it and was easily beaten in the third. that's all the sport for now. a british couple, gayle and charlie anderson, have been found dead in their home in mount pleasant jamaica. it's believed mr anderson was a builder who had built his own home in jamaica and the couple had recently retired there. police are treating the deaths as homicide. our correspondent, nick davis, spoke to us from kingston. the bodies were found on friday by a neighbour's affair is in the area of hope bay. they lived in mount pleasant, it is a small distance, a part of hope bay in portland, one of the quietest and i have to say one of the safest parishes in jamaica. very, very much more lower murder rate than what is seen in other parts of the island.
11:23 pm
but, nonetheless, it has come as a shock to people, not only within their local community over on the north—east coast, but also in manchester as well, where they lived most of their lives. retired back to jamaica, they were expecting to start small businesses here and basicallyjust live out the rest of their years quietly, but obviously that came to a tragic end. of course, it is a massively popular place for british people to visit and obviously, families like this decide they like it so much they want to stay. yeah, absolutely. in this case, charlie as he is better known, his family originally came from jamaica. gayle's family originally from manchester. they decided obviously they have been coming back to jamaica for many years, they contributed to the local community over in portland, but it is not what people expect. in the past, many people have spoken about returning residents being targeted. so far this year, five people who have retired back to jamaica have been murdered, but you have to put that in context. it is a sad context, i have to say, that so far here injamaica, over 600 people have been killed.
11:24 pm
last year, 1600 people. one murder too many. and the police say they are investigating but they do not say that these people have been targeted, but they do say there is another ongoing investigation involving these people which had already started and they are looking at that as a possible line of enquiry. a man has been charged with the murder of a woman who was found dead in a back garden in south—east london. a 56—year—old woman was found dead behind a house in greenwich on saturday. gary davis, who's 50—years—old, is due to appear in court tomorrow. donald trump has called for illegal immigrants to be deported immediately from the united states without access to "judges or courts." mr trump said on twitter that america "cannot allow all of these people to invade our country." in an apparent reference to the children of migrants who have been separated from their parents by us border officials,
11:25 pm
the president said, "most children come without parents." our correspondent, chris buckler, is following developments in washington. it has to be said that what donald trump is suggesting will shock many political opponents. the idea there should be nojudicial process and people should simply be deported whenever they tried to enter america. as things stand at the moment, there is the process of asylum. they go before immigration judges. it is not a new system, it has been in place for decades. donald trump believes the whole system has become unwieldy. he has taken a hard line on immigration itself. that policy of separating children from parents as they tried to cross the border, some in the white house suggested was in order to have a deterrent against people trying to arrive in the country. however, what we have seen last week is donald trump had to back down on
11:26 pm
that issue of family separations. as a result, he is now facing a backlash against his decision to backlash against his decision to back down against his better instincts. this is a stark tweet. he talks about not allowing people to invade our country. he says when someone comes in we must invade our country. he says when someone comes in we must immediately with nojudges or court someone comes in we must immediately with no judges or court cases take them back to where they came from. there is a lot of confusion about what is happening to families that have been separated. around two dozen children have not been reunited with parents, we believe. there is a suggestion that will not happen until they are released from detention or deported. but this rhetoric gives you a clear indication that donald trump is intending to talk about immigration going into the mid—term elections here which are held in november. and there are crucial elections that are truly divisive.
